having this issue with RX vega 56 and acer xg270HU, changing display color depth does not fix the problem for me. The problem disapears when disabling freesync
ryzen r7 1700
16 gb ram
msi b350 tomahawk artic
RX Vega 56 - 17.8.2 driver
acer XG270HU - DP-connection
Windows 10 pro 1703
I have the same issues. I will get a black screen with Far Cry 4 and Prey with freesync on and not issues with it off and not change with 6 vs 8 color depth. I also have ACer XG270HU, RX Vega 64.
then entire reason I bought Vega and this monitor was for freesync. please help!

Confirmed it was amd freesync causing black crash its gone now that I turned it off on my Viewsonic XG2701. ;(
I had the same issue with Vega 64, DP 1.2a ACer XG270HU. IT is the displayport! change to HDMI 2.0 cable and the problem is gone! I had the issues with Prey and Far Cry 4. I really hope this solves both your issues.
Exact same issue. Rx Vega 56 and Acer XG270HU with DisplayPort.
Same issue, AMD fury X, acer xg270hu with display port, black screen while gaming looking like signal loss.
No issue when freesync is disabled.
Issue seem to be resolved (or not as bad) with 17.4.3 drivers
Yup same issue here, RX Vega 56 and samsung c24fg73.
Have this same issue. Intermittent black screens, loud popping noises from monitor, flicker/corruption. I've verified it's only related to DisplayPort and not HDMI. It's worse at higher refresh rates and higher memory clocks. I've not attempted to lock the memory clock to min or max yet. Tried multiple DP cables which marginally makes it better or worse. Freesync aggravates the issue.
Really frustrating since I forked out quite a bit of money to get 144hz Freesync.
Win 10. Latest crimson drivers as of this date (17.9.3). Sapphire R290 TRI-X OC on an Acer XF240H monitor.
EDIT: SOLVED. SEE REPLY BELOW.
I have solved (for now) the issue of black screening / flicker / artifacts with DP 1.2a and Freesync at 144 hz.
USE AT YOUR OWN RISK. DOING THIS MAY DAMAGE YOUR MONITOR.
1) In Radeon Settings, go to Display > Specs > Override. Adjust Voltage Swing to '2'. (I believe this raises the voltage across the DP cable to the monitor which stabilizes signal for higher refresh speeds. I don't know this for sure.)
2) Back out to the Display menu again. Adjust Color Depth from whatever it is now, to a lower value, then back to the current / original value. This was an original workaround that greatly reduced the frequency of my blackscreens. In my case, I would adjust from 8 bpc to 6 bpc then back to 8 bpc. I don't know why this helped, but it did.
For now, the voltage swing adjustment has cured it for me.
Did this issue ever come back for you? I'm facing a very similar issues with a Nixus Edg 27 freesync monitor. I sent the monitor in for an RMA but they're not able to reproduce the issue so it seems like the issue is with my GPU. So hopefully when i get the monitor back and I can make the same adjustments you made and hopefully fix the issue.
